Watch: Björk Awarded Artist of the Year Webby

Bjork: Webby Awards 2012
Congratulations to Björk, who received the Artist of the Year Award at the 16th Annual Webby Awards in a ceremony at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last night. The Webbys honor excellence on the Internet. Björk's latest album, Biophilia, was released on One Little Indian / Nonesuch Records last fall and was also released as a suite of Apps in the iTunes App Store, with a dedicated App for each song on the album.

Björk was introduced and handed the award last night by Scott Snibbe, who had led the team of Biophilia App developers. All Webby winners are kept to five-word acceptance speeches. Björk's: "a-e-i-o-u." You can watch Snibbe's introduction and Björk's acceptance in the video below.

The 16th Annual Webby Awards were hosted by Patton Oswald. Other Webby winners include Louis C.K. as Person of the Year and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg for Lifetime Achievement. For complete coverage, head to webbyawards.com.

.....i just got finished watching a vid concert of Bjork and her band the Sugarcubes.........really enjoyed it!!!
i have also listened to some of the songs on biophilia apps..and love those too. i also enjoy many of the
songs on all of the albums Bjork has produced........i think Bjork is a genious and wished she would
have gotten more air play in the states when we actually had real radio stations iin this country.......
Unfortunately the djs were too busy playing the music they heard while their heads were shoved up
their butt's!!!!!!!!!
